Waitlisted, but will decline due to making out pretty nicely elsewhere. Kind of surprised, but oh well!

Submitted 10/16, invited to interview 12/16, couldn't do until after the New Year so didn't interview until 1/3, feedback submitted 1/4. Good luck to everyone!

I just heard somebody say that international students have no chance of getting into CBS if they apply for regular decision. Does anybody know if this is true??

I can't see how this would be true. Unless you leave it late in the regular decision and it's too late to to get a visa in time.

What was the logic behind this person's reasoning?

Hi guys, on the portal is the application status supposed to change from completed/submitted to 'under review' before we're supposed to hear back on the initial decision?

Also are interview invites sent out only via email? Anyone got interview invite on a phone call, by any chance? Thanks

Got ding from Columbia for the third time yesterday.

Irony is that I received the email from Columbia while I was out for drinks celebrating a close friend's admission. Didn't want to spoil her party so couldn't even tell anyone. Gotta do that now.

I had a bump in my GMAT score, promotion at work with increased responsibility, more international experience and clear goals, making my profile competitive. Or so I thought..

Good thing is that NYC would have been a very expensive place to live.. :)

Guessing you are a little old coming up on 11 years of work experience. Can i ask if Columbia seems to be one of your main targets and you've applied three times why you didn't do ED?
